The PCI Saints won 5-1 over Beliveau yesterday in the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League.
Head Coach Jo-Anne Clark Gillespie says after a sluggish first period a lot of players played some of their best hockey of the season.
"We gave up a powerplay goal to make it 3-1 but we responded nicely with a couple more. Haley Swidnicki got the win in net, and it was probably the best game she'd played for us all year. We actually had a number of girls that we could say it was easily their best game of the year."
Saints' Bailey Grantham had two goals on the night, the three Shwaluk sisters -- Maddie, Paige, and Kiera -- had the other goals. The Saints are back at it today when they host Garden City at the BDO Centre. Clark-Gillespie says they'll be successful if they focus on the things that work for them.
"It's all about us keeping possession of the puck, slowing things down, and moving the puck around. If we can get a better start to the game than we did (yesterday) we should be okay."
That game goes at 4.
The PCI Trojans are on the ice in Portage as well tonight. They've got a Zone 4 High School Hockey match with the Prairie Mountain Mustangs at the PCU Centre.
The Trojans lost their first match of 2017 to the Pembina Tigers last week, while the Mustangs fell Monday to Carman. PCI sits in sixth place with a 7-9-1 record, the Mustangs are in second last at 5-10.
Tonight's game goes at 7:30.
